Photos of Vintage Valentines

I love, love, love these new additions to my store -- Vintage Valentines at Birdhouse Books.  Just had to share a few photos with you!

This mechanical card features a couple dancing the Tango.  Fun ballroom dance theme!   It is mechanical -- the woman's leg moves.   I would date this as 1930's, and it is fabulous!

An adorable little girl with dark hair in ringlets - probably 1930's vintage:

Sweet homemade card for teacher dated 1939 -- look at the tiny little envelope child has made on the front of the card:

1942 card with children riding an old fashioned teeter totter playground toy:

1942 card for teacher -- especially beautiful illustration showing children around the globe:

Again, all these cards - and more! - are at Birdhouse Books!
